This tutorial will show you how to reset your UBishops password from both on and off campus as well as with the Microsoft self-service tool.
Remember, it is always important to follow our security practices when creating a password:
Creating strong passwords is an essential part of maintaining good cyber hygiene.
Be sure to use a unique password for each of your accounts. Reusing passwords makes your accounts more vulnerable to potential security threats. Finally, never share your credentials with anyone, this includes ITS. We will never ask you to share your password under any circumstances.
Your password is shared for all of the places that you use your Bishop’s username or email address to sign in. Changing your password through any of these 3 methods will change it for all of your accounts.
Once your password is changed, you will need to update it anywhere that you have saved it such as:
Visit the link below and follow the instructions listed on the page.
Your password should be a unique password that you have not used on your account previously.
Be sure to include “BISHOPS\” before your username without the quotations(“”)!
Your username should look like: BISHOPS\flastname20.
NOTE: This method will become available shortly. In the meantime, please refer to the other methods listed above or contact ITS to reset your password.
Setup the method that you wish to authenticate yourself with: Email code, text code, phone call, or one-time code.
Hit the “Email” button to have a code send to your recovery email.
Navigate to your recovery email inbox to find the 6-digit code.
Enter that code into the box.
After you have verified yourself through one of the four available methods, you will be able to change your password.

You have now successfully changed your password! You are now able to sign into all of the Bishop’s applications such as Moodle and myBU as well as your Microsoft Office 365 account, giving you access to Teams, Outlook, and more.

We strongly encourage you to do so.
